About this app

Stars allows the comfortable exploration of the most beautiful nebulae and constellations formed in our galaxy. The Ursa Major and Ursa Minor, the Butterfly and Horsehead nebulae are just a few of these amazing star patterns and cosmic structures that can be seen in great detail with this free application. Imagine you are travelling in a spaceship that can jump almost instantaneously through space, anywhere within our galaxy. Please notice that a constellation is a group of stars that forms an imaginary outline or pattern on the celestial sphere, while a nebula is an interstellar cloud of dust, hydrogen, helium and other ionized gases. Many images originated from these important sources: NASA, the ESA/Hubble telescope (www.spacetelescope.org) and the ESO observatory (www.eso.org); however, some colors and shades were tuned in order to make the images clearer. This app is mainly designed for tablets, but it works fine on the modern phones too (Android 4 or newer). Also, it does not contain ads.



How it works

Once the application is launched, one random nebula will be displayed in the center of the screen (we recommend the landscape orientation of your mobile device). The menu from the upper-left corner allows you to select any of the galaxy picture from the list; as it is displayed, you can zoom in or move the image, as you like. A double tap anywhere on the screen will toggle the Menu on and off, while a long tap displays the next picture; the five buttons from the right send you to this help page, move the list up and down and respectively display basic information about the currently selected star pattern or add the names of the important stars in constellations.
